Tommy Cooney and Wilberforce Ocran make debuts for Hornchurch

Hornchurch had two debutants as they faced East Thurrock United on Saturday, with the arrival of Tommy Cooney and Wilberforce Ocran.

Tommy, a full back, moved up a level from Sevenoaks Town, where he had made ten appearances this season. He was announced as a new signing for Margate in the summer- his second spell with the Blues- but doesn't seem to have played a match at Hartsdown Park before heading to Greatness Park. He had ten appearances for Bognor Regis Town last season, finishing on the winning side seven times- and previously played for Braintree Town, Leatherhead, Hungerford Town, Hayes & Yeading United, Metropolitan Police and Whitehawk.

Wilberforce, a forward, played youth football at at Watford, Arsenal, Leyton Orient, Enfield Town, Barnsley and Charlton Athletic, and whilst at the Valley spent some time on loan at Cray Wanderers- during their promotion season of 2018-19- and at Brentwood Town. He also played for Farnborough, and was back at Brentwood last season, making three appearances. This season he's been with London Colney.
